He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

'The whole human history shows that nations with clear mission and clear goals, which knew exactly why they live and work, were most successful,' head of the Synodal Department for Church and Society Relations Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said speaking on Thursday in Moscow Forum National Project – Russia.
